Owens Corning is going into the mineral wool insulation business.
The Toledo, Ohio, company has purchased Thermafiber Inc., a manufacturer of mineral wool insulation for residential, commercial, and industrial markets.
Owens Corning already makes a variety of insulation products, including its familiar pink fiberglass batts, blown-in fiberglass, extruded polystyrene, and duct liner and duct board.
Thermafiber has a single 145,000-sq. ft. plant in Wabash, Indiana, with about 150 employees. Owens Corning would not say how much insulation the plant currently produces.
